Occupational therapy is a profession that helps people of all ages to do the tasks they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapists enable people to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent, or better live with injury, illness, or disability.
Occupational therapy interventions include helping children (with or without disabilities) to participate fully in school and social situations. They also help people recover from injury to regain skills, and provide supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Here at Florence Therapy and Wellness our Occupational therapist will provide an individualized evaluation which determines the person's goals for rehabilitation. The person will engage in a customized intervention to improve tolerance and ability to complete daily activities independently. The therapist will ensure that goals are being met throughout the therapy process by evaluating the outcomes and making changes to the intervention plan as needed to reach set goals.
